Growing, diverse, and now world-wide

Definitions

Information architecture is a field attracting members of many different disciplines, including web designers, digital librarians, software developers, user interface designers, cognitive scientists, applied anthropologists, project managers, multimedia artists, and educators, to name just a few. These practioners and researchers bring the strong principles and methodologies of their own disciplines to the new and emerging field of IA and this benefits us all.

ASIST and SIG-IA

Until recently, those who practiced IA operated largely on their own, without the benefit of a professional community. Now, SIG-IA has begun to play an important role by providing a central gathering place: channels for discussion, learning, and professional development.

Joining

Over the past year, SIG-IA has become a dynamic, growing community of IA practitioners joining in different ways and sharing resources:

  • the SIG-IA e-list - Join a forum encouraging the active participation of people all levels who are interested in IA

  • SIG-IA Web - Contribute to a growing channel for interactive communication about information architecture.

  • Local IA Groups - Join one, and be part of a growing network of local, independent organizations.

  • Participate in ASIST, the parent organization of SIG-IA . Find further resources in all areas of information science.
